And on top of that none of the exhaust bolts for the rear section would come off, even after soaking in PB blaster for a day, so I had to remove all this crap with the exhaust in the way! I will never buy a car that has been near the coast. It didn't look bad at all when I got it, but now that I start digging deeper it seems like all the exposed carbon steel fastners are stuck.
there is a shop with a press around that could help you out?

I ended up taking to panicmotorsports locally and we attempted to beat it out with a larger hammer. No luck there. I ended up just getting a new axle.
Well after all this drama I had to pull an axle on my wife's 97. And guess what? It was stuck too. I attemted to hammer it out, with the nut on this time! No luck. I ended up taking it to my machine shop. They had a pipe sleeve just big enough to fit over the CV joint and pressed the axle out of the hub without damaging the spindle or the hub. I will tell you this much thouhg, it took alot of force to get that succer to budge!
